Lupine Piko TL Max

Sometimes a bike light or headlamp is not the ideal solution— a flashlight is handy in the hand.

But you don’t have to choose between a bike light and a flashlight any more, because the Lupine Piko TL Max fits easily into even a small pocket and one’s hand, and it can also be mounted on a bike handlebar .

The Piko TL Max fits perfectly and comfortably into my hand. It is small and light enough to carry in a cycling jersey pocket without noticing it, and throws a very bright beam.

Add in programmable operation (I set it to 4 levels of brightness) and it’s the best flashlight I’ve ever used for that combination of qualities.

Variants

The “Mini” has a big brother with a larger battery, the 180g Piko TL Mini Max, but I prefer the more compact size and lighter weight of the Mini.

  • Piko TL Mini Max (slightly larger, 1.7 Ah battery).
  • Piko TL Max (slightly larger, 2.5 Ah battery).
  • Lupine Piko bike light on headband — offers hands-free operation with a wide choice of battery sizes.

All are great choice for many uses, including backpacking. Set the light to double-click-on to avoid turning it on with a single press while stowed. There is even a mount for a bike handlebar.
